Volunteer State Bank delivered its support to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by gifting funds to help fund research and treatment for blood cancers. The bank also aligned an awareness campaign with its Halloween festivities to generate a deeper purpose and greater outreach for this cause. The collaboration between Volunteer State Bank and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is a testament to the power of community involvement and collective action. This partnership emphasizes the commitment of each organization to both help build a community of people who are dedicated to supporting their local neighbors and help find a cure for those affected by these diseases.
“By joining efforts with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, we strengthen the impact we can help provide on the lives of others— including our own team members that have been directly affected by blood cancer. Volunteer State Bank is always proud to put community first and be a valuable resource for our local communities in Middle Tennessee,” stated Tony Gregory, chairman, president, chief executive officer at Volunteer state Bank. “This partnership serves as an example of the good that can be accomplished when businesses and nonprofits work hand in hand towards a common goal.”
Through fundraising efforts, educational outreach, and advocacy initiatives, both organizations are working to increase awareness and understanding of these diseases and provide support and resources to patients and their families.
“Volunteer State Bank is a beacon in our community and their generosity directly supports our mission to develop cutting-edge treatments, offer crucial resources to patients and families on their blood cancer journeys and advocate for healthcare that any patient can access and afford,” said Tori Duncan, campaign development manager for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
